Laramie Letters 5.16.23
Letter from the Principal
Dear San Tan Families,
Happy Second to Last Week!! We are wrapping up the school year and counting down the days! Please look out for teacher emails for end of year conferences. We are asking for donations for end of year conference dinner for teachers.
We are very excited that we had such a great feedback from our Recker Academic Awards over at Power starting at 4:30pm. We had over 1000 people registered for the event, however, our gym only holds 500 people. Therefore, we will be live streaming the event and will be asking that only two people per student attend to conserve room so all students can have supporters in the crowd. I am so grateful for your help with this. I am so proud of all the support for our students!
– Mrs. Sarah Laramie

Shoe Drive Update
The following classrooms are in the lead!
Would you ever think that your old shoes could help offset field trips next year? Well they can and here’s how. Our team is participating in a fundraiser where there is nothing to buy or sell, all we need is your support and your old shoes. We are looking for community members to help support us by agreeing to collect 25 pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes in the next 4 weeks. Here’s how you do it:
Start in your family’s closets and gather pairs of shoes that you’ve out grown, are out of style, or out of season. If you have 25 pairs, great, if not please ask your neighbors and/or co-workers to do the same. These shoes will help support our program as well as individuals in developing nations like Ghana, Haiti and Cambodia. Connect with me to get them picked up or you can drop them off at these locations: in your child’s classroom or at the front of Recker. Can we count on you? Please reply YES, I’LL HELP. PS: if you can’t collect 25, then try for 15, 10, or 5. Remember, every pair that you collect helps.
This year’s tax credit giving goal is $100,000.00.
Your gift — large or small — will make a difference.
